Chicago Newborn Session — Ethan!

I have not gotten to photograph a little one this little in a long time. Ethan arrived into the world a wee bit early and I got to meet him at the perfect age of nine days old for his Chicago newborn session. In talking with his (very awesome) parents, I am in total awe of how easy they’re making everything look with this parenting thing. Ethan seems to have gotten that message too. He was a total joy to photograph!

Of course, every little boy needs a protector and Maisy is totally up for the job! At first she was not so interested in any part of this Chicago newborn session or the strange photographer lady.

But after a few quick naps on the portrait setup softness, she came around. She really embraced her camera-ready self during some diaper changes and feedings where she didn’t have to share the attention. Doggies make good models too!

Miss Maisy wanted some attention too. Oh, okay πŸ˜‰

Working with models and clients, I don’t often get many opportunities in front of the camera (which is usually just fine with me!) but every now and then I sneak in a few.

Baby Ethan was a total superstar during his session! It might not seem like it from these hilarious expressions, but he is such a good little guy!


I see big things ahead for him. He’s already perfected the “no pictures, please” expression for paparazzi. And in that case, I call dibs–I got him first πŸ˜‰
